Friday Favorites: The Gospel and Personal Evangelism


Mark Dever is the pastor of Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington D.C. He’s widely known as an author and conference speaker who “specializes” in ecclesiology (the doctrine of the church). His best known book is Nine Marks of a Healthy Church. Two of Dever’s nine marks are “the gospel” and a “biblical understanding of evangelism.” These two marks are combined in Dever’s short book, The Gospel and Personal EvangelismThe book is formulated around a series of questions:

  • Why don’t we evangelize?
  • What is the gospel?
  • Who should evangelize?
  • How should we evangelize?
  • What isn’t evangelism?
  • What should we do after we evangelize?
  • Why should we evangelize?

Dever’s answers to these questions are concise, biblical, convicting, and encouraging. If you want an accessible summary of the gospel and evangelism, this is your book.
